All veteran brothers may please go the following important message of IESM:-
"Dear Veterans,

1. Our multidimensional action plan to get justice to the Defence Forces got a forward push on 05 May 2010 wherein we were able to brief the Chairman Parliamentary Standing Committee Sh. Satpalji Maharaj, MP on OROP in his office in Parliament House Annexe. The secretary ESW and a few more officials from the Defence Ministry were present during the discussion.

2. The response from Sh. Satpalji Maharaj was positive. He gave us to understand that his committee will soon be recommending to the Govt that the long pending issue of OROP must be re- examined on priority and the issue resolved. Write up on OROP and a paper written by Vice Admiral Barin Ghose were handed over to him and the same can be accessed by veterans- CLICK HERE.

3. Request was also made to the Chairman to give the IESM delegation an appointment wherein a presentation on OROP could be made to the complete Parliamentary Committee on Defence. He assured us that the same would be arranged.

4. I once again appeal to all ESM of India to join the Indian Ex Servicemen Movement (IESM) at the earliest and take active part in all its endeavours to get Justice to the Defence Forces. I also appeal to the veterans in India and those living abroad to donate funds to logistically sustain the Movement. In case the Govt continues to ignore our legitimate demands, we have a plan to be executed with the finesse and resoluteness of a Military Campaign named “DILLI CHALO” a Mammoth Rally at Ram Lila Ground New Delhi. ESM from across the country will move from all directions and camp all around the capital at 5- 6 locations. On the day of reckoning ie the Day of the Rally, the columns will move into the city, assemble at Ram Lila Ground not only to showcase the strength of the ESM but also to ensure that the Govt sees the reason and grants us the Justice. Of course the event will be conducted peacefully and in a democratic and dignified manner.

5. Large sums of money would be required for organizing and administering such a huge rally involving lacs of ESMs. We appeal to all our veterans and all Bharties who believe in our cause to donate funds or sponsor logistics ie camping arrangements at concentration areas, Rally site arrangements, transport, food, water, publicity and other arrangements.

6. The plans will be firmed in after evaluating the response from veterans and availability of the required logistics.

Please be part of the Campaign. "Sar Firoshi Ki Tamnna Ab Hamare Dil Mein Hai”.

With Kind Regards,

Jai Hind

Yours Sincerely,
Maj Gen (Retd) Satbir Singh, SM
Vice Chairman Indian ESM Movement
